Scottsdale-based architecture firm Drewett Works wins two Silver Awards for Best Interiors of a Custom Home, and Best One-of-a-Kind Home–Custom or Spec at The 2022 Nationals awards ceremony.

The National Home Builder’s (NAHB) National Sales and Marketing Council presented both honors for DW-designed Ebony and Ivory. The Paradise Valley, Ariz., residence marries a classic design aesthetic with modernist design principles and was conceived around the homeowners’ love of food, wine, family and entertaining.

The Nationals salutes and honors the best in the building industry—including home builders, developers, associates and consultants—for their determination, integrity, creativity and endurance. Silver Award Winners are the top vote that recipients receive in each category, making them the finalists for the Gold Awards, which were presented in February 2022 in Orlando, Fla.

“The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovations in new home design, marketing and sales,” said John Madden, chairperson of The Nationals. “NAHB’s commitment to recognizing originality, imagination and success has been exemplified by its award winners since the competition’s inception.”

Begun in 1982 as the Institute of Residential Marketing, The Nationals awards program continues to recognize superior new home sales and marketing achievements. With 61 categories across various disciplines of the new home industry, the awards honor excellence in product and community design, advertising, marketing and sales achievements by individuals and sales teams.

During a four-day judging process, a panel of 13 industry professionals from across the country determined the Silver and Gold award winners from a field of more than 1,200 entries.

The Nationals are co-sponsored by Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. To view all of the award winners, visit

About the winning project:

EBONY AND IVORY—Set within a box canyon in Paradise Valley, Ariz., this award-winning residence was based on a melding of the husband and wife’s contrasting design aesthetics. They desired a kitchen that showcased the chef but also provided ample prep space unseen yet nearby. An indoor/outdoor bar is the showpiece of the home, providing a stunning setting to socialize and sip. A dreamy wine cellar and hidden wine vault provide protection and storage for a legendary wine collection. The project team included Drewett Works (architecture), BedBrock Developers (builder/landscape), Mara Interior Design (interiors), and Werner Segarra (photography).
